“We can't all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by." ... Will Rogers


 

Each flight includes two preflight meetings, the actual flight, a post flight debrief and a reunion.  Each event requires a place to meet, setup, refreshments, and a variety of event specific help to check in vets and guardians, pass out items, etc.  Meeting support can be a few hours helping out at a specific meeting to responsibility for a specific event.

A preflight meeting involves approx 20 people, each doing a specific task or set of tasks.  Most are involved in working a "station" where specific activities occur, for example:

  • checking in vets and guardians and ensuring that their photo ID matches our records

  • checking that the various forms required are filled in correctly and signed

  • passing out packets of information

  • taking information on shirt size (for flight shirts)

  • verifying emergency contact information

  • medical screening

  • refreshments

  • flow managers who ensure that people know where to go and how to get there
